17 January 1997 FRANK: trialing a system for remote navigation of film archives
Author Affiliations +
The Research Data Network Cooperative Research Center is conducting trials over an experimental city-to-city asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) network as part of an initiative to investigate potential applications of high- speed switched networks. One of these trials involves the remote access and navigation of video collections by film and television researchers and is being conducted to investigate the architectural design and implementation issues of such a system. The trial involves several Australian film and television archives and archive users who normally search through footage from remote archives as part of the process of film or television production. FRANK (the film/TV researchers archival navigation kit) is the software developed for the trial that provides a tight integration between video playback and the searching and navigation through alternate representations of the video such as transcripts and shotlists that may reside on different locations on the network.
